Rollout of Lenovo Laptops/Desktops: @SpiceWorks

Asset Upgrade. Roll out of 100 new Lenovo laptops and desktops.

Review of IT department assets revealed an inventory of outdated and out of warrenty user equipment. Review of current equipment contract with Dell reviewed that the contract was not competitively priced. I decided to review other brands and market offerings. Sought out and received quotes from 3 vendors. Finally settled on Lenovo brand.

With the initial order my team rolled out 15 Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E545 laptops and 10 ThinkCentre M78 – Small Form Factor desktops. Later we rolled out 25 more units (duplicate order).

The laptops/desktops were preinstalled with Windows 8 but we downgraded them to Windows 7 to ensure that they were in alliance with all company laptops.
